Re: [Fwd: Group permissions don't seem to work]
I thought this bug would have been fixed. I fixed it in my copy of an older
revision. The "preoblem" is that the attributes of the group being used for
acl testing are not treated as the ND's that they are. They are trated as
cis. THis in my way of thinking is totally incorrect given that a group is
always a list of dn's and nothing else. I don't undestand how it could have
been coded otherwise.
This also effect the way the regex evaluation works withing the acls, have
these been fixed for cse sensitivity or are we still supposed the be regex
experts to use this facility.
Cheers, no offense inteded,
